With what I just read about this phone the HTC one S is a better pay for your money.

you have to match the quality and the specs of the phone into its price.. 5mp and 1500mah battery with that price i dont like it, well you can have galaxy s2 which also supports jellybean with that price better than this one.. they have to drop the price in order to worth it..

Seriously people. Did you expect Samsung to release a phone to rival it's flagship phone. It's a flagship for a reason. It's a midrange phone with jb. Price will go down. Expect this to replace Samsung other midrangers.

Really. That spec for nearly $500 phone.

The only resemblance to the original S3 is by its name.
This phone shouldn't cost more than $250 - $300 retail.

There are other much better bargains out there.

With a stupid move like this, Samsung has given android supporters cause to doubt their credibility. Last year, I bought a Sony Xperia Neo V because I could not stomach the specs and price combo for Samsung devices.
I am an ardent Samsung supporter but this piece of devlin should not be called by the hallowed name S3 mini. Call it galaxy ace mega and be done with it. Retarded specs and stupid spinoff attempt.
How to get our collective opinions to Samsung management before they launch this fiasco of a phone and lose a large customer base and goodwill.
Cheesy epic fail of a fragging phone. Almost made me.go looking for an iPhone 5 to murder in rage.

I would be happy if samsung pulls d brks a lil on manufacturing all these plenty fons. i think they r just too many and confusing. i use d S3 and i love it ba smaller S3 with lower specs is not necessary. At least if so they should have kept 95% of d software same.

the loooks are same as the galaxy s duos & all others specifications are same as galaxy s advance
i doubt whether this phone will be coming to market or nor or its just a rumour.....

person who is going for 4" will surely go for s duos or s advance with cheep price range having 768 mb ram

and if its coming in the same price range i.e around 20k
then its going to sell a lot

This isn't a bad phone but definately clever marketing by Samsung. Put the name Galaxy S3 Mini, same specs as an older Samsung, a sexy little body, add on a big price tag and Wala! People rush out to buy this phone. This isn't worth more than £200 so anyone paying £300+ are insane! People accuse iphone owners for paying just for the logo but this is just paying a lot for a mid range phone!

Same old Scamsung is up with its tricks again!
First the rumors of a S3 mini emerge and all are theorizing that the mini will have same internal specs as S3, but smaller 4" screen --> WIN!
And now this deformity of a phone comes out. Scamsung is again trying to scamm people into buying this utter c...
This phone was released by Scamsung just to make fun of iP5 (4" screen) and the new iPad mini (S3 mini name) (two for the price of one).
I feel sorry for the poor chaps who will buy this phone!
